That's a really good point about the feminist reasoning behind not using "we". I was fairly OK with the erasure for a long time. But the fact that she has been writing extensively about my parents' move to Tucson -- with which she has helped immensely, I must add -- while also, it seems, engaging in a new romance here in town and still writing around me has been too much to handle.

Well, I certainly think that my reasoning is way different from her reasoning, especially because I haven't come close to writing Ron out of the LJ version of my life anyway. More like, writing him out of silly grocery-store anecdotes, or whatever, just so everything isn't all "ME AND MY PARTNER, WE, WE, US!" all the time. I have never read her journal, didn't even know she had one, so I am only just from this entry starting to learn what kinds of things she has been writing in it. It seems really weirdly unhealthy, though I shouldn't presume to have anything approaching all the information. But to craft a narrative so at odds with the reality of the situation seems like it could lead to weird compartmentalizations. I definitely understand why it would be difficult for you to deal with; I don't know if I would be able to!
